Prayer for More Inclusion

On this Shabbat as we gather to celebrate Pride and pray together, let us take a moment to reflect on why some people and connections are respected or recognized by law while others are not. May our community honor our diversity including Trans folks, single people, friendships, non-monogamous relationships, interfaith unions, and other sexual intimacies. In the spirit of tikkun olam, we hope & pray for more inclusion. May the day soon arrive when respect and civil rights are freely granted regardless of who we are or how we choose to live our lives.

ברוכה את יה, אלהנו רוח העולם אשר קדשתנו במצותיה
וצותנו לרדוף צדק, ולכבד כל נפש ושותפות

B'rukhah At Yah, Eloheinu, Ruach ha-olam, asher kidshatnu bemitzvoteha
vetzivatnu lirdof tzedek,
u'lichabed kol nefesh v’shutafut

You are Blessed, O God, Spirit of the World, who makes us holy with your mitzvot
and commands us to pursue justice and honor all people and connections.
